Assistive technology is breaking down barriers for employees with disabilities

September 16, 2016

Access to assistive technology is helping people with disabilities succeed at work and in volunteer roles in the community.

The Technology@Work program, operated by the Neil Squire Society, launched just over a year ago to support employment for people with disabilities. Since then it has helped people like Rahul, Michael and Lori overcome barriers and meet their goals at work.

This September, British Columbia will celebrate inclusive employers and the contributions of people with disabilities in the workplace with the third annual Disability Employment Month. This recognition of meaningful employment for people with disabilities is an integral part of Accessibility 2024 (new window), the 10-year action plan to make British Columbia the most progressive province in Canada for people with disabilities.
